Dr. Groove surprised himself by getting this show together, albeit late again, but none the less it is here, to be inputted into your head whenever.
The show has one of the great rock songs, and possibly the greatest intro to a song, ever! What am I talking about? Thin Lizzy and Chinatown, obviously.
Apart from that – the show of two halves – give a ball and a yard of grass, goes in a different direction, as we ease down into 70’s funkiness – and finally finish up with this great gentleman, Robert Wyatt. Do yourself a favour and listen to the last song in a mindful space.
Lee Scratch Perry – City is too hot
Robert Jay – Alcohol (Pt. 1)
Dr. Feelgood – Milk and Alchohol
Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band – Run Paint, Run Run
Cheer up, Ireland… with this fab selection of 1917-1950 sound reproductions from the Eurozone and beyond, including several featuring New Orleans jazz pioneers Sidney Bechet & Zutty Singleton whose birthdays were both during the week…
Abraham Lincoln, John F Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Susan Miller, Patricia Martin, Peter Fisher, Edzard Ernst, Robert Mathie and Barabbas. All these people, plus Mike, Marsh, Colin and the British Hirsute Andrews – it’s Skeptics with a K! Skeptics with a K: Episode #018
This week’s show is a cornucopia of musical genres. Little bit Dirtnap, little bit In the Red, smattering of Tic Tac Totally, even a spot of Subpop. Not much talkin, good amount of rockin. Tune in for:

GrooveOnTheWireless#31 Commenced in a flurry of nigh on uninterpretable Irish(Gaeilge), the Doctor is in session. Desperately seeking better weather, like less hail in May, the operation is a sun dance. More akin to a witch doctor he attempts to conjure up better weather by resorting to the beauty of disco, with a Ben Pearce reworking of the classic Quincy Jones track ‘Betcha wouldn’t hurt me’ and we take it from there.
This week starts off a bit garage with a bit of Female Hercules in honour of Reynald’s posthumous birthday celebrations which are happening tonight. And then the garage just kind of took hold of me (well that and the Bavaria) so it was on to a bit of The Ty Segall Band and then the Moonhearts (who’s only album is produced by Ty Segall and is bassed by Mikal Cronin) so it was a no brainer to stick a Pink Floyd cover off Ty and Mikal’s colaborative album into the mix. That one went pretty far out into the weirdo-sphere so I brought it back with a bit of The White Wires and a bit of Belgium’s contribution to the 77 scene, The Kids. A weird one came up next as I’m not terribly au fait with X, but this track is solid. The drums melted straight into the Jesus Lizard which put me into a ‘shit hot live band’ mood. Cue past local heroes, The Things and Bambi. So all hyped up on local music, I was reminded of the two scumbags that knocked Philo’s statue over during the week so I played a bit of Thin Lizzy and kept it rockin with a bit of Drunk horse. At this point I had had enough of songs more than a minute and a half long and stuck on a bit of Low Culture and The Mind Spiders (who both feature former members of The Marked Men) Then the Bavaria took over again (well that and the garage). Cococoma, The Jacuzzi Boys , Jaill and Red Mass rounded things off. Fuck yeah, let’s garage!!!
This week’s show is all about the Karate Klub’s 10 Anniversary Compilation Record and it’s launch tomorrow (14th July, 2018) in Dalymount.

To celebrate the occasion, I am joined by John 6 of any number of bands that have practiced in the space and who has been with it since the very beginning. Tune in for the tunes, stay for the laughs. Tunes brought to you tonight from:

Live from the Button Factory Dublin 11-05-2013, apologies for the first two songs in the set that are missing and the bass splats later on in the recording, we were finding our feet still at this stage of the day.
In this special episode of Skeptics with a K, recorded in front of a live audience at Liverpool Skeptics in the Pub, Mike, Marsh and Colin discuss the Liverpool Mind/Body/Spirit festival, Otto Von Bismark, dinner party guests and shooing away broken bones. Plus, a special bonus lecture from Marsh on PR and the Media.
